What could possibly be better than visiting an apple orchard on a beautiful fall day in New England?
The answer? Visiting three apple orchards all in one day.
It was a day that was blessed with glorious weather.
The temps were perfect, the sun shone like liquid old and fluffy white clouds skipped around the blue skies .
While I love buying apples for munching, plus to make future pies, bettys and coffee cakes, I also love to see what other products the apple orchard gift shops carry.
At the various orchard stores there were other kinds of fruit for sale as well as maple syrup, jams, jellies, Cabot cheese from Vermont, hot coffee or cider, and on and on.
Cider donuts being made (shown at top of post) filled with air with tantalizing aromas.
One could wash down one of the delectable treats with freshly squeezed cider. Yum!
So Sunday was a perfect day here in New England, in more ways than one. The western Massachusetts orchards visited in this blog include Lakeside, Bartlett's and Hilltop.
